On the radio this morning one of the DJ's shared a real-life scenario that I thought might make an interesting debate topic.

I think Melissa needs to get a life or at least unbunch her panties. It is so nice to get a break from toddlers, and if you have a health club membership with childcare, and you want to lounge by the pool and chat with your friend, then you should go for it. It is probably good for your mental health and besides, it is not like those women were feeding their toddlers cyanide or something.

Melissa needs to get a grip. The moms stayed on the premises and were enjoying the facilities, as they paid to do. I've never seen anywhere in any health club contract that the member must get their heart rate up while at the gym in order to use the daycare, so they were well within their rights.

Who cares that they said aloud what almost all of us are thinking when we get time for ourselves? Heck, I cry freedom if I get to go to the grocery store alone!

I'm a single parent who has my kid 100%. There have been times where I took a vacation day and he has school just so that I could have some time to myself. I rarely get a babysitter and sometimes I just need a little time to myself. I don't feel I need this time often, but I do need it.

If they are paying members, then they get all the full benefits. Whether they work out, or work out hard enough to break a sweat is really irrelevant.
Why is this woman in the scenario so nosy about what other people in the health club are doing? She sounds like she needs to get a life.

Parking my ditto here. If the health club didn't want people lounging pool side and chatting, they wouldn't put furniture there, y'know?

On the other hand, I tend to think Melissa was just pot stirring because let's face it, it's likely her job. Just like boards like this one live and die based on number of hits every day, so to do radio shows based on the number of people who listen and talk about the topic. The more controversial, the more attentnion paid, the better.

Where does she get off judging someone else's motives for using the daycare?
